Accessibility Conformance Report Review

When evaluating an Accessibility Conformance Report, there are several areas that should be critically reviewed:

Header information completed

  • Date: Given how quickly technology changes currency is important
  • Name of Product: Make sure the product name and vendor name is present.
  • Version Number (if applicable): The product version number should be present (if applicable).
  • Contact for more Information (name/phone/email): Contact info (name, email, and phone) for the person/group that completed the VPAT should be available.

Multiple Interface Option

In general if the product has different interfaces for different audiences (e.g. faculty, staff admin), or applications on different devices, then clearly identify the level of support and the associated remarks and explanations for each of the audiences, versions or modes. For complex products, we recommend separate reports to explain each of the components. When separate reports are required, reference them the notes section of the report.
